Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) revealed last Tuesday at a press briefing that a vote is imminent this week to potentially initiate a formal impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.
The move comes in response to the White House stonewalling the preliminary impeachment investigation launched by former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) in September. As The Gateway Pundit reported, the House is running out of time to vote on impeaching Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas before a month long break for the holidays.
On Tuesday, ahead of this crucial vote, the House Republicans released an ‘Impeachment Inquiry Explainer’.
In a video narrated by Rep. Jeff Van Drew, several key points were made, including that the Biden family is running an “influence peddling scheme,” with evidence of millions in payments to the Bidens, including two payments that went directly to Joe Biden; a disturbing WhatsApp message purportedly sent by Hunter Biden to a Chinese executive was highlighted.
The explainer also revisits Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma, despite alleged lack of qualifications and the potential involvement Joe Biden had with the Ukrainian prosecutor’s firing amidst this controversy.
The release of this explainer is a tactical move by House Republicans to streamline the grounds for their inquiry and articulate the evidence they have collected to the public. It also serves as a response to Democrats who have downplayed the investigation’s significance or accused it of being purely politically motivated.
